Ever felt that we say something and stand by it no matter what. Even if a little part of our brain is telling us that the alternate theory could be better as well, yet we try our best to hold on to the original opinion we had held and contort our minds so as to convince ourselves that what we know is the best version of the truth!
It perhaps stems all from the ego. We say something and we stand by it no matter what. We convince our minds that it is the ultimate truth and too sacrosanct to be altered. We fear change. We fear what we have stood for may be wrong and we unconsciously ‘protect’ it. This is a human tendency, especially of a human entangled in materialism.
May be, evolution still has a long way to go !
